Perhaps this is done because the expected near-spherical explosions don't feel as big, or because a two-dimensional shockwave resembles that of powerful explosions on earth.
Very commonly used in space-based video games, as it is a relatively "cheap" and easily produced effect. Count on the hero's Cool Ship to be directly in its path by apparent coincidence, allowing him to Outrun the Fireball.
In Lyrical Nanoha, if something is struck by the Arc-en-ciel, a spaceship weapon that distorts time and space to vaporize a target, it will produce these after it gets destroyed. The destruction of the black hole at the end of Diebuster spawns a small, rainbow-colored one that promptly twists into an infinity sign before fading away.
Possibly the earliest example of a planar shockwave is the self destruction of the Nostromo in Alien (1979). Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, when the Klingon moon of Praxis explodes in a double shockwave ring. The Special Editions of the original Star Wars trilogy do this three times: once for each Death Star (vertical and horizontal rings, respectively) and once when Alderaan is destroyed.
Attack of the Clones takes it one step further, with the shock bombs dropped from Jango Fett's ship: The resulting explosion is focused into a thin disk shape that seems to simply cut through the surrounding asteroids. A planar shockwave has advantages: the 'blast' effect of a spherical explosion goes down with the square of the radius (4 Pi r2).
According to Wookieepedia, the shields on anything smaller than a capital ship would be unable to defend against these charges, supporting this idea that the planar shockwave is in order to produce a much more powerful blast. The Expanded Universe novel Death Star explains the ring produced by Alderaan as the realspace shadow of a hyperspace ripple, produced as a side effect of the Death Star's superlaser being fully charged when fired. This can also be used to explain the ring produced by the Death Star II in Return of the Jedi. Actually, a better explanation would be the fact that it was sitting on a platform, surrounded by a ring of the as-yet-unnamed material the Stargates were made of, something that was explicitly stated would enhance the blast. Independence Day features something similar as the Alien Mothership explodes: The explosion spreads horizontally on the screen, eventually engulfing the camera. Also, during the ship-to-ship battle between the Tiger's Claw and the Kilrathi ships, an enemy capital ship is hit with two torpedoes and explodes, emitting a planar shockwave that proceeds to destroy another Kilrathi ship. An apparent example occurs when Jupiter explodes in 2010: The Year We Make Contact, but it is made clear that it is actually the visible edge of a spherical shockwave when it catches up to the heroes' ship.
The orbital laser station (the ZEUS) in Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within explodes like this at the end of the movie.
A rare earth-based example occurs in The Transporter when the main character's house is blown up by the bad guys.
In the Cities in Flight science fiction novels by James Blish, there is an explosive TDX that only explodes perpendicular to the local gravity field.
In Neal Asher's books set in the Human Polity, there exist planar explosives which are allegedly the product of molecular engineering, which produce 2D blasts. Though averted in Stargate SG-1 in favor of the usual (equally unlikely) space fireballs, Stargate Atlantis used a planar shockwave when the Asuran homeworld explodes.
In a Space Cases episode, the two-dimensional shockwave of two exploding Spung battlecruisers (due to double Deadly Dodging) destroys the third one.
A spectacular one is seen at about 40 seconds into the opening for Power Rangers Lost Galaxy. We also see Zebes exploding in the same way, but with cooler visuals, in the Adventure mode of Super Smash Bros.
In Tachyon: The Fringe, all spaceships go down with shockwave rings, more noticeable on large ships. While most explosions in the Escape Velocity series will just be the usual yellow-orange-red atmospheric looking fireballs, the very most awesome ships and weapons exploding will make planer and ring shockwaves in pretty colors. Averted in Star Fox 64, where all explosions are spheroidal (although they end up looking like geodesic balloons due to polygon limitations).

Star Fox Adventures plays this straight however as most spaceships in the game blow up like this.
In Serious Sam, rockets, grenades, cannonballs and laser beams send Planar Shockwaves of various sizes along the surface they explode on. When Kilrah is destroyed at the end of Wing Commander III, it explodes into a relatively flat shockwave that catches Blair's fighter as he tries to escape following his attack.
Wing Commander Prophecy uses an upgraded graphics engine compared to previous games, and is the first game in the series to use 3D acceleration. In the Xbox version of Crimson Skies (High Road to Revenge), this happens when you blow up zeppelins (despite being filled with helium). Veigues: Tactical Gladiator plays this straight with the enemy battleship's explosion in the ending cutscene. In Star Trek Online, visual planar shockwaves result from a number of different types of explosions, though in most cases the actual force of the explosion radiates in all directions. In Darths & Droids, which loosely follows the plot of the Star Wars movies, the shockwave bombs from Attack of the Clones make their appearance.
The intro of the Second Reality demo does this in homage to the aforementioned Praxis explosion.
The shockwave ring from the first Death Star's destruction is carried over into the parody of the scene in The Powerpuff Girls. The Transwarp Wavefront in Beast Wars created from the exploding Vok Weapon was plot-significant throughout the second season.
In My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Rainbow Dash causes a rainbow-striped planar shockwave upon performing the Sonic Rainboom. Because stars involved rotate at high speeds, collapsars (a form of hypernova) tend to form hourglass-and-ring shapes. Derivatives, or swaps, are basically bets between companies and banks that are designed, in essence, to be insurance policies. The problem with derivatives is that since they often involve highly leveraged bets, they can be very dangerous. In fact, derivatives were used to conceal credit risk from third parties while protecting derivative counterparties, which contributed to the financial crisis in 2008. The annual gross domestic product of the entire planet is between $50 trillion and $60 trillion. Most disturbingly, another financial crisis is inevitable because the causes of the previous one have never been resolved. What is particularly troubling — and appalling — is that the Dodd-Frank law places taxpayers as the backstop behind Wall Street derivatives trading. Little noticed is that on Tuesday Team Obama took its first formal steps toward putting taxpayers behind Wall Street derivatives trading — not behind banks that might make mistakes in derivatives markets, but behind the trading itself. Specifically, the law authorizes the Federal Reserve to provide “discount and borrowing privileges” to clearinghouses in emergencies. To get help, they only needed to be deemed “systemically important” by the new Financial Stability Oversight Council chaired by the Treasury Secretary. The question is, given the size of our economy relative to the derivatives market, where will all the necessary bailout money come from when that market eventually implodes? This entry was posted in news and tagged derivatives, economic crash, fed printing, the independent report on September 30, 2014 by Site Admin. Used to make big kabooms (especially those that blow up whole planets) appear more powerful, and when spheroid shockwaves just won't do. The trench dividing the two hemispheres is weaker than the rest of the shell, which would cause a (if somewhat smaller) Planar Shockwave.
Which given that space is three-dimensional makes them extremely ineffective weapons that only work because Obi-Wan seems not to be aware of that fact.
Presumably this is also the case when the Death Star itself explodes, as it was literally seconds away from firing on Yavin IV when it was destroyed. According to EU materials, the second Death Star could recharge much faster than the original, so it was likely charged to full power when it blew up. In the immediate detonation a streak of light appears across the screen which is exactly horizontal, despite being seen from two different perspectives (from space, where it doesn't align with either the ship or the planet, and from the ground where it aligns with the horizon).

Despite being the squadron commander, the idea of glancing behind her and pulling up never occurs to her. Apparently, traveling close together, leaving no room to maneuver, is standard operating procedure for the kitties. The "randomly oriented" part is only when 3D shockwaves are enabled in the updated FreeSpace 2 Open engine. In Starfleet Command, the same planar shockwave effect is used for every ship above the fighter class. This is especially apparent when Andross's head explodes at the end of the game exactly like the Death Star did, complete with ship's outrunning the fireball. Among the new visuals is a planar shockwave effect that randomly occurs when a fighter craft explodes. One player explains that they might work like that because of the inverse square law - by concentrating the force into a ring, more damage is done by the ring. You can barely see the part that's coming straight at us, but the edges (where our view is tangent to it) look very bright. However, it's just cloudlike condensation as the invisible spherical-ish shockwave passes through layers of the atmosphere where pressure and water content are right.
Certain configurations do produce planar outflows of plasma (consider a column of high-density gas in a vacuum. The dying star, as it sinks below Roche's Limit and gets torn by the tidal forces, gets spread into a ring structure around the black hole, called an accretion disk.
While even casual observers have surely heard of derivatives, most are unlikely to know what exactly they are.
Derivatives allow investors to earn large returns from small movements in the underlying asset’s price. If interest rates were to rise unexpectedly, for example, it could result in a financial bloodbath on Wall Street. They can be many things, but are basically contracts or bets that derive their value from the performance of something else — an interest rate, a bond or stock, a loan, a currency, a commodity, virtually anything. According to one of the world’s leading derivatives experts, Paul Wilmott, who holds a doctorate in applied mathematics from Oxford University, the so-called notional value of the worldwide derivatives market is $1.2 quadrillion. The whole market is set up to be incomprehensible to anyone other than those who arranged it, making it beyond regulation.

The shockwave actually gains plot significance here when it hits the starship Excelsior, since it makes the Federation aware of what happened. However, the first Death Star exploded vertically, and the second Death Star wasn't completely built yet. It is worth noting however that Jango used the charges specifically to blow apart the asteroids they were flying through, making the fact that he happened to have these charges very fortunate indeed. After this explosion has been witnessed by the cast, a second effect shows a more traditional Planar Shockwave, this time in the plane of Ra's ship.
No wonder a single human ship was able to deal so much damage to the more advanced Kilrathi.
They get sucked into their own drive singularity, which then explodes in a green planar shockwave as it decays. The often relativistic rotation of the hot electrically charged plasma in it creates huge magnetic fields and electric currents in the direction perpendicular to the disk's plane, ejecting all the matter in the black hole's polar region in two enormous relativistic jets, sometimes attended by the powerful bursts of gamma radiation. However, investors can also lose large amounts if the price of the underlying asset moves against them significantly. Over the last five years, banks earned an estimated $20 billion selling derivatives just to school districts, hospitals, and scores of state and local governments across the country. Since there is no air in space, it is theoretically impossible for a shockwave to propagate.
